Kobe Bryant, Carmelo Anthony, Kevin Love reportedly scrimmage at UCLA

Kobe Bryant has long lobbied Carmelo Anthony to join the Lakers.

As the Lakers eagerly wait for Carmelo Anthony to decide with whom he'll sign for next season, Kobe Bryant and Anthony apparently worked out together on Sunday at UCLA.

Bryant and Anthony would be teammates next season if the All-Star forward chooses the Lakers over the New York Knicks and other suitors.

According to the Twitter feed of David Grace, Bruins assistant men's basketball coach, "Carmelo Anthony, Kobe Bryant and Kevin Love here at UCLA playing pick up!!!  That's what happens here at UCLA!!!"

Love is under contract with the Minnesota Timberwolves but is believed to be on the trading block.  The All-Star power forward can opt out of his contract with the Timberwolves before next summer.

The Lakers met with Anthony on Thursday. He also recently visited with the Chicago Bulls, Dallas Mavericks and Houston Rockets.

Josh Rebholz, UCLA's senior associate athletic director for external relations, also said on Twitter that Bryant, Anthony and Love were all on campus Sunday. Rebholz later deleted his tweet.

Anthony may not have made up his mind yet, but Bryant has long lobbied the high-scoring forward to join the Lakers.
